Glados voice is a tribute to portal

Sorry, I was on vacation...GDT explained why he uses Glados voice (Ellen McLain) in Pacific Rim: "I wanted very much to have her, because I'm a big Portal fan," del Toro said. "But just as a wink. She's not cake-obsessed." The final voice will be slightly different, less computer processed, but Guillermo Del Toro has Valve's authorization to use Glados voice.

GDT said: “I said, ‘Look, there’s no A.I. I’d rather have than GlaDOS,’ ” he said. But McLain’s voice has been modulated a bit to be less similar to the distinctive tone of Portal’s AI. “The filter we’re using is slightly less GLaDOS. Slightly. The one in the trailer I wanted to be full-on GlaDOS.”
